Dear Art Lover,
Tuscany got no rain this spring, never good for anyone’s spring, is it? So last week’s rains and temperature drop were a welcome surprise. I took the opportunity to photograph not only the lovely clouds around my home in the hills, but also the few baby olives we have this year. I asked my landlord recently if he talks to his plants. He shook his head. I smiled and said, “no worries, I can talk plenty.” Hahah.. Sadly, it is true. Will it help the babies grow to be beautiful olives? Tough year, this one.
To those in the US, happy Independence Day. Nothing says independence as nudity and motorcycles, right? Enjoy… and feel free to make an offer on this charcoal drawing, “Hellcat at the Pitti.” He will ship from Hickory, North Carolina, zip code 28601. He is framed in Museum Glass [really good non-reflective glass], an acid-free mat, and good quality black wood frame [see photo here]. If you prefer to frame him yourself, send me your offer for the 18 x 25-inches charcoal drawing alone.
Cast off and four months to go before the docs allow me to try to carve stone again. I hope that I have the patience to heal slowly and properly this time.
